Moving Household Goods to Luxembourg 

When it comes to moving your household goods to Luxembourg, SDC International offers a variety of services tailored to your budget and timeline. Our team of experts ensures your consignment reaches its destination promptly and securely.

 

 

LCL (Less than Container Load) 

At SDC International Shipping, we provide LCL services designed to accommodate your specific shipping needs. With LCL shipments, your goods are consolidated with other cargo bound for the same destination, optimizing efficiency and cost-effectiveness. This option is ideal for small to medium-sized household consignments, allowing you to transport the quantity you require without the need to fill an entire container.

Choose our LCL services for a tailored solution that meets your shipping requirements with precision and convenience.

FCL (Full Container Load)

In addition to our LCL services, we specialize in full container load (FCL) shipments to meet your diverse shipping needs. FCL ensures timely delivery, cost-efficiency per shipping unit, and minimizes the risk of loss or damage associated with multiple handling at freight terminals.

Opting for FCL means you can maximize the space in either our 20- or 40-foot containers, allowing you to transport as many personal belongings as needed in a single, secure shipment. Trust SDC International Shipping for seamless FCL services tailored to your requirements.

Containerized Ocean Freight  

At SDC International Shipping, we provide comprehensive ocean freight services, encompassing both LCL and FCL options to suit your shipping preferences. No matter the destination within Luxembourg, our logistics network ensures seamless delivery.

As Luxembourg is a landlocked country, our process involves shipping your container to the primary port in Antwerp. From there, we coordinate efficient overland transportation to deliver your shipment directly to your doorstep. Trust us to handle your containerized ocean freight with precision and reliability, simplifying your international relocation experience.

Air Freight 

For urgent shipments requiring swift delivery to Luxembourg, SDC International Shipping provides efficient air freight services. Collaborating closely with forwarders and airlines, we ensure your household goods reach their destination promptly.

Count on us to expedite the shipping process, delivering your consignment to Luxembourg with speed and reliability. Choose SDC International Shipping for seamless air freight solutions tailored to your time-sensitive needs.

How Long Does Moving to Luxembourg Take? 

The duration of your move to Luxembourg depends on several factors. Generally, ocean freight shipments, particularly via FCL (Full Container Load), typically take around 8-10 days to reach their destination. However, for LCL (Less than Container Load) shipments, the timeframe may extend further. Additionally, the final arrival time in Luxembourg from the nearby port is influenced by various variables.

As your trusted international household movers, we prioritize swift delivery of your belongings. Rest assured, we exert maximum effort to ensure your items reach their destination in the shortest time possible, facilitating a smooth and efficient relocation process.

Assistance with Importing Household Items 

At SDC International Shipping, we go beyond standard international moving services to Europe by providing you with timely assistance regarding customs clearance procedures, fees, duties, and taxes relevant to your shipment. Here are some key points to note:

  • To qualify for exemption from duties, you must have owned and used your items for at least six months.
  • Exemption is granted if you have resided outside Luxembourg for the past 12 months.
  • Your shipment should arrive no later than 12 months after your arrival in the country.
  • Certain items may still be subject to taxes.
  • For up-to-date customs policies, you can visit the website of the Luxembourg Customs Office.

Required documents for importing your household items include the Bill of Lading, Passport, Declaration 136 F, Type D Visa, Packing List, and Declaration of Arrival within three business days of your arrival.

Our dedicated movers collaborate directly with forwarders to streamline the clearance process for your shipment, minimizing delays and avoiding additional costs. Trust SDC International Shipping to handle the importation of your household items with efficiency and expertise.

Shipping a Motor Vehicle to Luxembourg 

Shipping a car to Luxembourg is easy. You won’t have to pay duties if you purchased your auto more than six months ago. Another requirement is that it should have run 6,000 km on the odometer. Cars entering Luxembourg without duties can’t be sold or changed ownership for the subsequent 12 months. 

Required paperwork: 

  • Title and driver’s license
  • Proof of insurance
  • International insurance coverage
  • COM4 Declaration
  • T-form to move your car inside the EU
  • Employment proof from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

This is not a full list of required documents. As your international mover to Luxembourg, we’ll guide you through the process. 

The Cost of Moving

At SDC International Shipping, we understand that every move is unique, which is why we provide personalized quotes tailored to each client’s specific needs. Our quotes are generated based on various factors, including the volume of your goods, the origin of your shipment, the specific services you choose, and the ultimate destination.

It’s important to note that shipping costs can vary depending on the distance and logistics involved. For instance, the cost of shipping to Luxembourg from New York will differ from that of shipping from San Francisco, even if the shipping services are identical.

Rest assured, our team works diligently to provide transparent and competitive pricing, ensuring that you receive a comprehensive quote that accurately reflects the scope of your relocation.
